  • The dedication put into this work, this attraction is amazing. The details are awesome. Went with family and we enjoy looking and pointing out different features. We also enjoyed pushing buttons to make different things move or trains riding around. It's not a time consuming attraction, but worth checking out.
  • This is a neat place!! If you enjoy a little history, art and a sense of wonder this is a must stop by! Lots of great details like rivers, streams, bridges, tunnels and several working mechanical models. Sure there are a few button that didn't work, but consider the incredible amount of details and work that took this one man nearly 60 years to build! One church alone took 400 hours to create, complete with hand painted stained glass windows.
  • Amazing to see! There are buttons around the outside of the display to make things move ans the detail of the display is stunning!
  • This is the best of the many train layouts I have seen. You can view the massive display from four sides and three different levels. It does not cost an arm and a leg to visit either. The kids easily spent two hours wandering around in circles admiring the super fine details laid out (most probably 50 years ago). Maybe it gets crowded, but not in the evening when we were there. We basically had the place to ourselves. Everything is O scale, and there are a couple interactive parts for the kids to enjoy (operate your own trolley car on the layout). They even simulate night every so often so you can admire the city at dusk. Very cool! Also, there is a little gift shop with train-related items. Worth checking out in my opinion. I've been coming here for almost 40 years and hope to come for 40 more.
  • Amazing modeling skills on display here. Worth looking and spending the time just to view the intricate detail in each of these models. Stay for the night show.
